Lambourn and its surroundings are second only to Newmarket in their importance as a centre of activity for the UK racing industry.

About 10% of Britain’s racehorse trainers and approximately 3,700 racehorses are located within the North Wessex Downs AONB. The springy, free-draining chalk turf to be found here is the perfect landscape for training racehorses and the sight of thoroughbred racehorses being exercised on the gallops early in the morning is truly exhilarating.

Look out for the Lambourn Trainers stables open day every Spring.
